THE STORY:

I teach Drama classes at a Junior High School for Visual & Performing Arts in the projects of NYC. Recently, I've been approached by an amazing community based non-profit organization called the Jacob A. Riis Settlement House. They have a really great relationship with my school and have been working with them for many years. The plan is to set up an after school literacy and dramatic arts program for our Junior High School students and share their performances with the community. One of the Assistant Principals at my school introduced me to the program and I've agreed to work with them on this every week throughout the school year. Many of my students are very excited to begin this program and I'd like to do everything that I can to keep this organization around the neighborhood.

Having witnessed the swelling of pride exhibited by some of my students after performing an acting activity in front of their classmates, I can personally attest to the program's ability to foster self-confidence and pride in those who participate in these programs. The students are from diverse backgrounds who manage to find acceptance among their peers when they put on performances together.

Please show your support for the arts in our school's community. Give these kids a stage to express their creativity and talent to others. Thanks so much!
